Funny Face! After Roman Holiday, it's my favorite movie of hers. Trust me, you'll love it.


This movie takes the cake for Audrey Hepburn movies for me. Favorite line: "You have my permission....to withdraw..." (while turning, with skirt falling off) I may just have to pop this is right now, just because it's that awesome.

I'd suggest Breakfast At Tiffany's next.


Abso-freaking-lutely blows them out of the water. It's one of my all-time favorites.


Since you've already seen one of my all time favorite movies, Breakfast at Tiffany's, you HAVE to see Sabrina. :)

Have you seen the French film Amelie, starring another worthy Audrey (Audrey Tatou)? Beautiful movie. Top of the list for me.


I have not seen this, but I need to! I've heard so many good things about this movie and I adore Audrey Hepburn!! And what to see next? MY FAIR LADY of course :)


oh I love this movie too!
I haven't seen them yet but I've heard that "Sabrina" and "green mansions"(the movie with that cute little fawn audrey had as pet afterwards) should be also very charming!

"Roman Holiday" is romantic comedy perfection. I can watch it over and over, and I do!

"Two for the Road" should be your next choice! Such a good, heavy-hitting, marriage primer but not lacking in funny and sweet.


I LOVE this movie too! I own it :) I also adore the ending. And I especially like the scene when Gregory Peck sticks his arm in the liar's wall and pretends its got his hand. I've read somewhere that was not supposed to be part of the scene - that he did it just as a joke and her reaction was so great that they kept it in the film.
I'd suggest 'Sabrina' next. It stars lovely Audrey as well as Humphrey Bogart & William Holden. Its wonderful :)


Funny Face is cute, but I don't like it as much as Roman Holiday for some reason. Same for My Fair Lady...she's great in it, and i love musicals, but it just doesn't measure up to Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's for me.

I'd recommend Charade next! It's cute and funny and you can't go wrong with Audrey and Cary Grant:)

Oh yeah, Amelie is one of my all time favorites too!

Miss Modish

oh I've seen photos of her with that deer- didn't know it was from a movie! Oh goodness, gotta find that one.

Miss Modish

I know! That scene was so awesome! Made us laugh a lot and yeah, I read it was an "ad-lib" or whatever too. So cool!

The Frugal Style

I LOVE Audrey Hepburn movies. One Christmas I went a bit overboard and asked for them all... All sorts of people got me one, and I ended up with two or more of some of them. I had to donate the extras, but I still watch them all the time. What great family and friends I have to give me such stylish and fun movies to watch!


Sabrina should be your next movie. There are soo many though. Don't forget Charades (that's for later, as you progress though her body of work) and How to Steal a Million!


My Fair Lady!!! I love singing along! And be sure to check out the extras and hear Audrey sing.


Well, where to begin.
She is charming and adorable again in Sabrina. Although her and Bogie seems a bit far-fetched. And Charade is good just for it's pure silliness (Cary Grant at one of his top silly movie moments). But don't discount Wait Until Dark, it's a suspense film, very good, although I'm not a huge fan of her husband in the film. And The Children's Hour is good for a bit of drama and scandal! And it stars another cutie Shirley McLaine. I could go on and on with film suggestions! I love old films.

p.s. My Fair Lady is a pleasant musical (a bit long) and Audrey is obviously not the one singing, and Rex is just a scoundrel. Grrrr, I hate that last line, but the songs are great.

and flowers pick themselves

it's been far too long since i've seen roman holiday. i'm feeling a gregory peck marathon may be in order this weekend...

i love roman holiday and breakfast at tiffany's! sabrina is another one of my fav audrey hepburn movies.


i have been hoping to come across another movie that makes me feel the way i feel about roman holiday.. it's tough! sabrina was wonderful, and how to steal a million was really fun.


I definitely vote for Funny Face!
Also, if you loved Amelie, check out the director's (Jean-Pierre Jeunet)latest masterpiece: Micmacs
It was brilliant!

I love Audrey Hepburn!! And also Gregory Peck! My other two favorites are My Fair Lady (I grew up watching musicals) and Sabrina! I also really like Charade, which also has the classic Cary Grant. Mmm, old movies are the best!


Charade and Two For the Road. Both are favorites after Roman Holiday!


There are so many wonderful ones, and the clothes, ah, the clothes, are wonderful, for different reasons, in each one!: Sabrina, Charade, Funny Face, Wait Until Dark, Two For the Road, How To Steal a Million, Love in the Afternoon. . . .


Charade is my favorite! How to Steal a Million is a great one too.


SABRINA is my favorite!!! I love Audrey! May I also suggest the Audrey Hepburn Story? It's a made for tv bio of her life, unfortunately with Jennifer Love Hewitt, but it's interesting to learn about her life growing up during WW2, love affairs, etc. I read her bio book but I like to see it on screen too!

"Yes, we have no bananas.....we have no bananas today!" I love Bogey and William Holden in this movie. I told J I will bring it for you guys on Monday since I have a copy-if you want!


You should see Shag: the Movie, circa 1989. It was my favorite girlfriend movie in high school. {I'm now *ahem* 30, and haven't seen in since then. Wonder if I will still like it...} Anyway, imagine Phoebe Kates and Bridget Fonda, great dancing, and 1960's dresses. Let me know if you watch it. XO

I probably shouldn't admit this during an Audrey Hepburn love-fest, but I really didn't like or understand Breakfast at Tiffany's. I think her style in that movie is beautiful, and I loved bits and pieces of the movie (Moon River, saving Cat at the end), but altogether I just didn't get it.

However, like you, I adored Roman Holiday. And my favourite of all time, which I highly recommend, is My Fair Lady. The costuming is mind blowing, I find myself humming the songs while I clean the house, and Audrey is as cute as a button.

Oh how I love Roman Holiday! It is one of my favorite films ever! Definitely watch Sabrina next...it's so amazing! The remake in the 90s (with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond) was pretty good, but not nearly as good as the original with Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and William Holden... enjoy...


I also say see Funny Face!! The opening sequence alone is worth it! Think Pink!!


Sabrina...and it's remake...I liked them both...

Livy K

I just re-watched this last week! See Sabrina and Funny face next.


Charade is a great one!


I'm not a big fan of musicals, so my vote is Charade. It's genius.


Funny Face is super lovely to watch! Wonderful colours and outfits!


I love Roman Holiday, but my favorite Audrey Hepburn movie is definitely Funny Face. And then Charade. And then How to Steal a Million. And Breakfast at Tiffany's.... hahaha. Truth be told, I've never seen an Audrey Hepburn movie I haven't liked.


Love that movie! I watched it last year for the first time. Her short hair is so adorable. I vote you watch funny face next.


One of my all time favorites and of course I can watch "Breakfast at Tiffany's" over and over. Gee I'm not sure if she made any bad movies. They are all do wonderful. Makes me want to rent one right now.


Ooh, you are all just like me! Funny Face and Charade are my next favourites. Love the dancing and the stunning clothes in Funny Face. I have never seen two for the road, but since you all sound like you have my kind of taste in movies, i will watch it next.


We just saw this for the first time ever this spring and OH i finally get the whole Audrey Hepburn thing. really get it. she's so, so, so lovely.....

and I've always loved My Fair Lady. you'll get the craziest little snippets stuck in your head from that one.


Great film! I absolutely adore Audrey in Love in the Afternoon. Dreamy.

I love the start of Sabrina. Especially when she is at Paris. There is a scene at a culinary school that is simply too cute.
The wardrobe for this movie is off the charts. Never was there a greater pairing than Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy (fashion designer).
Both very good movies. I hope you check them out.

Funny Face MUST be your next. "Think Pink!" is hilarious and she is charming in a wedding gown (that you might covet!). Congrats on discovering Roman Holiday - a favorite of mine for many years and possibly the inspiration for me and my BFF on our next milestone b-day trip!


I love that one too! Just so darn witty, y'know? I really love Sabrina (although I wish I could put her with Harrison Ford from the remake - I know, blasphemy!) and My Fair Lady for sure.

Go Amie

They have neither Audrey Hepburn nor Gregory Peck, but you should watch "It Happened One Night", starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable, and "My Man Godfrey", starring Carole Lombard and William Powell. They put all other romantic comedies to shame.


This is one of my favorite movies. i love how girlish and innocent her character is to the world. i love when she gets her hair cut and when she tries driving his vespa. i love it all!!
thank you for reminding me about this movie, i must watch it again soon.


This is a *great* movie. I watched an interview about it once where Gregory Peck said that Audrey blew him away during the filming. He was so sure she'd be an instant star that he called up the studio and told them to give her "top billing" by putting her name right under his above the title of the movie. It made me think that Mr. Peck must have been a good guy as well as a super-cute actor.


Although all the movies mentioned are great - see The Nun Story. I think it was her best performance in a film.


Funny Face! You must watch Funny Face-- the clothes are divine :)


Sabrina! Then, Funny Face! AHH!!! LOVED THIS POST!

This is a wonderful movie and one of my favorite Audrey films! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Sabrina, Funny Face, and Two for the Road are all excellent choices for your next Audrey movie!




You just have to see Funny Face. I think you will enjoy it. One of the characters is a fashion magazine editor, and there's a scene that I like watching on YouTube where she "sings" the song "Think Pink." Very entertaining sequence :-)

Love your blog. Also, my best wishes to your coming wedding!
